Bowel Screening

Offered to men and women aged 60-74 every 2 years, bowel scope screening is currently in a phased roll out offering one flexi-sigmoidoscopy to those aged 55 years with the possibility of self-referring up to age 60

The coordination of screening is managed by the Southern Bowel Cancer Screening Hub. You can contact them via:
